1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / University Research: Queries about building a trading platform on: January 24, 2020, 06:39:13 AM
Greetings Everyone,

Someone recommended me to post a query with regards to my planned research of creating another cryptocurrency platform in the next few years of my stay in the academic university and my sole reason for creating this post is to have a prior knowledge about the environment of building a trading platform and to have an upperhand during my senior years. 

I have posted this planned research project in Beginner and Help board before and got a few response.

Greetings Everyone,

I can't think of another section where I can post this query so I decided to post it in here.

I am a 1st Year Computer Engineering Student in the University located in the Philippines and I am thinking of a research or a thesis project that is related to cryptocurrency since I am a into crypto and has an interest in finance as well. Someone told me that a research or a thesis project that relates to crypto is a unique and a good idea. As a student with a love for crypto and blockchain, I am aware that there are trading platforms out there that is big and has been known in the crypto industry for a long period of time, they became well known because they are offering services that gives their users an outstanding trading experiences. But can I ask if are there any other opportunities or improvements that needs to be implemented and designed on a trading platform? or are there any crypto research project that can help crypto enthusiast to better their crypto journey? Is this a good idea? If not, do you have any other opinions or recomendations?

I am pointing to exchanges like Binance, IQ Options, eToro, Coinspro (PH Based crypto trading platform), Coinbase etc.



I have read an article that creating a trading bot / computerized trading will be a good idea for aspiring Computer Engineers.

I've got a few helpful response.

If i were to give recommendation, how about focusing security aspect of exchange or using trading bot?

What are the specific topic should I learn to proceed in the security aspect of exchange or a trading bot?

in one word: decentralization
specifically when it comes to altcoin trading platforms. for years we have seen exchanges either scam their users or get hacked and it is the users who are always the losers. having decentralized exchanges where the user remains in full control of his keys solves a lot of those issues but so far we don't have any as popular decentralized exchanges.

I know that in order to understand decentralization, I must have a basic understanding of cryptography and the blockchain itself. But are there any recommendation of topic that I will start with?

Trading bot logic is easy to understand. I'm pretty sure you can get the gist of it from reading one or two articles from the internet. Another topic that might be interesting is to know how 'good' or useful a trading bot is. It is discussed here and there but afaik there's no quantitative figure with lots of data about it.

I know there are lots of articles out there in the internet and there must be guidelines on how a trading bot works so I think reading a lot of them is a good start. However I would love to hear your opinions about this.

3  Local / Pilipinas / Need insights regarding hardware wallet on: January 13, 2020, 03:43:53 PM
Greetings People,

Based on the recent attack in coins.ph and and a case wherein one of the member here in our community lose his/her funds, bigla akong nag alala with regards to my funds in coins.ph. Kaya nagpaplano sana ako bumili ng hardware wallet that can store BTC, ETH and XRP since ito lang din naman yung laman ng coin.ph ko. However, I have a few questions.

1. Meron bang na mabibili thru FB wherein there is a lower price offered comapred to the original price and maintains the originality of the product?

2. May fee ba kapag nagtatransfer ng crypto from coins.ph/ exchange/ or any kind of wallet sa hardware wallet?

3. Hardware wallet recommendations? Please explain why it is useful.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

6  Economy / Goods / Selling Physical Goods (ARTWORKS) on: November 18, 2018, 12:14:43 PM
Good Day Everyone,

I think this is the most appropriate place to ask these questions because I am not able to gather a lot of information when I posted this in our local section.

I just want to ask what are the rules and regulation when selling collectibles particularly hand drawn cryptocurrency themed artworks. I saw some thread that they are posting their work in progress drawinf in collectible child board and posting it on Auction when the artwork is now ready for sale.

I have also read a list of reputable escrow so that would not be a problem.

I just dont know how the system works in auction or selling any physical works. Please enlighten me.

If you have some ways on how to have a proof of ownership or certicate of authenticity in an artwork feel free to comment.

Thank you. Smiley

Mayroon bang proper sa pag- sell ng collectible or any other personal crafts sa marketplace?

How will I escrow the payment?

And how can I transfer it if the person who wants to buy the crafts is in the other country?
8  Local / Pamilihan / [ADVICE] Which market is the best? CRYPTO or STOCK MARKET on: September 21, 2018, 12:51:03 PM
Good Day Pips,
I am also a student just like others who are into cryptocurrency and having a interest as well investing in the stock market? I am currently studying both market to increase my financial literacy in order for me to secure my financial needs and to attain financial freedom as well.

Cryptocurrency is a well rounded market and is very volatile when it comes to their own prices, while stock market has a very slow pace of changing prices.

The question is; Is investing in stock market is a good idea  up until now? I am planning to invest it for a long haul as well as in crypto.

Edit: I want to elaborate your reasons why stock market is still good in investing up until now. I don't want shitposts.
9  Other / Politics & Society / What is School for? on: September 14, 2018, 02:08:32 PM
Greetings to the world,
I am actually inspired by a public figure in facebook, and it really affect me and make me questioned myself What is school for actually?

As a student, I wonder how can these academics studies will benefit students in their future? Are these complex mathematics problems/ equation will going to have a real life use in the future? It also doesn't make sense to me why school system is forcefeeding all the knowledge in 6 hours per day and then measures all the knowledge you memorize thru a papertest?

What about the students who have a passion in their life but the school is destroying it little by little. Also, school doesn't teach students on how to buy their loans, houses, or any other stuffs that might be useful in their future.

School makes student depressed, suicidal, feel stupid, wanna die, hate life, sick, nervous. Is this what school for? Or maybe I am not just realizing it.

I am an average student, I just feel pity for my classmates who's trying their best but it is not enough. They have dreams but the school is destroying it.  Huh

Ps: English is not my native language.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / A must watch CRYPTO Documentary on: February 13, 2018, 12:48:38 AM

I suggest you to watch this especially for those beginners who wants to learn the origin of Digital Economy.

I found a useful review about "Banking on Bitcoin" by Michael Brown

Banking on Bitcoin: A Review

By Michael Brown September 21, 2017 | 9:30 am

 The popularity of bitcoin is on the rise. To many, the rising value of bitcoins means that they are a great alternative investment. True, the cryptocurrency is not exactly being used by most people and there are some in the developing world who are not yet aware of bitcoins, but the global currency, which is free from any restrictions from any governments or organization, has not only become very popular, but has also exhibited the value of the blockchain digital ledger technology, which is described by the BBC as “the underlying ledger system on which bitcoin is based”.

Bitcoins is a relatively new currency, and although a lot of the global population knows everything there is to know about it, there are others who are aware of this cryptocurrency but do not have much knowledge on how to use it. Banking On Bitcoin is a documentary that pretty much explains everything about bitcoin inside out and gives a deep insight into this phenomenon.

The Banking on Bitcoin documentary explains the fundamentals of Bitcoin, where and by whom it was founded – and why the creator’s identity still remains a mystery. It also gives some insight into the usefulness of using this cryptocurrency, considering such transactions have no fees or very low fees, and fewer risks in terms of being used online.

It’s clear that bitcoins are yet to be used as normal everyday paper currency, but leading brands in some industries have realized the potential for the cryptocurrency. A case in point is online gaming: some internet casinos, such as Bitcasino, have decided to trade exclusively in bitcoins. The brand also offers a VIP scheme which comes with many benefits, based on a points system. The fact that the operator doesn’t have to pay fees to banks and e-wallet brands allows them to push more promotions to players.

Released in independent cinemas across the United States of America on January 5, 2016 and created by Christopher Cannucciari, Banking on Bitcoin starts with the condensed but informative history of the cryptographic technology, including the significance of Satoshi Nakamoto in the development of the blockchain currency. The documentary explores all angles of bitcoins, and includes interviews with business owners who are using this cryptocurrency, financial columnists from The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and former New York Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky.

The movie then looks at the state of the bitcoin industry, including its rise and the stumbling blocks in its progress. Banking on Bitcoin does not get shy away from looking at the Silk Road and Mt. Gox cases, as well as Charlie Shrem’s prison sentence for his mistakes with BitInstant, which gives credence to the film. Instead of airbrushing the mistakes, the film actually opens the audience’s eyes to a different side of the phenomenon. Also included are interviews with various people who for some reason or another, oppose the cryptocurrency. As such, it is pleasantly neutral in its coverage.

Considering the rise of bitcoins, there are bound to be more documentaries about it in the coming years, but at the moment Banking on Bitcoin is the most definitive one. For anyone who wants to know about bitcoins or wants to invest in this industry, this movie is a must-watch. It explains, as impartially as it could, the benefits and the pitfalls of using bitcoins in daily life, both online and offline.
